We hold a large collection of printed material about Manchester and its region.
From its origins as a Roman settlement to the medieval market town, through its important role during the industrial revolution, development as a transport centre and inland port, and present status as a centre of cultural and sporting excellence, Manchester has always played an important role in the history of England.
All aspects of its emergence into the great city that we know today are covered.
